Default Ram

Is there a program or something to check and see if my RAM Sticks are still good besides putting them in another computer?

How much should I test at one time? I have 3 sticks of 512mb. Should I test 768 at each test or 512 at each test?

Is it bad to have 3 x 512mb of RAM when I have 4 slots on my mobo? All sticks are ddr 333 pc 2700.

if youir mobo supports dual channel ram then you won't get the extra bandwidth. but there is nothing wrong with it.
